Kathmandu, October 4
Market monitors deployed by the government on Thursday sealed two more sweet shops of Kathmandu after they found cockroaches in their kitchens.
Officials of the Department of Food Technology and Quality Control sealed Byanjan and Annapurna, located in Gaushala, near popular Pashupatinath Temple of Kathmandu.
On Tuesday, the officials had sealed an outlet of Sangam Sweets in Naya Baneshwor of Kathmandu.
Consumer rights activist Madhav Timalsina, a member of the monitoring team, says kitchens of these shops were dirty.
Likewise, products of these shops did not clearly mention manufacturing and expiry dates, according to him.
The government has been carrying out market monitoring activities more frequently in the run-up to biggest festivals of Dashain and Tihar.
